This lot is sourced from more than 450 farmers living in the Yirgacheffe, Aricha district. Farmers deliver ripe cherries to the Gizat washing station, where they are sorted into grades using density channels, fermented for 36-72 hours, washed, floated for defects, and then sent to raised drying tables for 8-15 days or until desired moisture content is reached (11.5%).
These African raised beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for optimal, steady drying. Cherries are also turned regularly to prevent damage via over-fermentation and/ or mould growth.
The cherries are stored at a local warehouse after the moisture is recorded at 11.5- 12%, then further processed (colour, density and screen size sorted) and milled ready for export.
